A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. You'll be Alright When kids throw bricks and insults, And jeer as you pass in the street. When the snot-nosed child of perfect strangers Spits in your face and stamps on your feet. When dogs snarl as you walk past, And bark out loud in disgust, When you're just the fag-end of the butt of the joke, Life's a bitch. Life's a bust. Inanimate objects attack you - without provocation or cause. You always seem to be in breach - of some obscure clause...

Safe beside his wife, inside his home, But sometimes when she's sleeping he is paralysed with fear. He still feels so alone. "Go to sleep - if you can, Rest assured...

A new song composed and performed by Gerry Dempsey. A dreamy, romantic love song. Lyrics Sunburnt by Moonlight Sunburnt by moonlight. Frozen by fire Trapped in the headlights Of loving desire. Helpless and wounded, But I don't want to run, But to come to you - As two become One. Blinded by sunset. Haunted by night. Deluded, delirious, Drunk with delight.
